Description

Part of the Fringe Central Events Programme for Fringe participants. It's the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising that kick-started the modern LGBT Pride and civil rights movement. Join us in celebrating the role of queer artists in generating social and political change. We'll explore how artists amplified the voices of their communities.

Stick around after as we raise a glass to Marsha P Johnson, Stormé DeLarverie and Sylvia Rivera.
